He said:” People should go out and exercise their franchise. We have provided two types of security in Anambra State. One,bwe are policing the election process to making sure that citizens exercise their franchise without molestation.
Two, we are checkmating the activities of criminal elements like the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Eastern Security Network (ESN), and other criminal elements, who don’t want people to exercise their rights.
I advise the citizens to go out and exercise their franchise as adequate security has been provided for them. I am very worried about the situation in Anambra; we are doing our best even though we need improvement”.
